Getting your tubes tied

My father swears up and down that women gain weight once they get their tubes tied, is this true? I really want to get them tied, but I'm already hefty, don't want to get outta control!! Any personal experience with this?

  • I think hes thinking a total hysterectomy and without your ovaries working you would gain weight but just having you tubes tied shouldn't have any affect on their producing hormone.

  • No you gain weight carrying a baby.
